Man Utd boss Ferguson keen to utilise English loan market

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to utilise the English loan system.

Federico Macheda had little luck out on loan in his native Italy while Joshua King struggled for game-time at Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany.

"Very few of our young players go abroad on loan," Ferguson told manutd.com. "We had Federico Macheda go to Sampdoria and he was only there a week and they sacked the coach. It ended up being a nightmare for him and he never got a game. I think its better that the ones that go on loan go to the Barclays Premier League or the Championship.

"By doing that, we can have regular contact and see them every week. We get them watched all the time. That's the process by which we work under."
